Maybe it’s my football view (proper football), but a move like this is just nowhere near as “toxic” or as bad as people are making out. Perhaps people expect it to be different in the US game.
But when a football team in the UK, or Europe, hires a new Manager, they sign on with ultimate control of a team. You more often than not, find they play a part in the hiring of a “Director of Football”, essentially the equivalent of the GM in the American game.
Someone the Manager has a previous relationship with, someone who wants the same things for the team, someone who buys into the vision the Manager has for the next 3-5 years.
The Director of Football is “higher up” within the business side of the game whilst the Manager handles the team but the Manager still rules the roost.
I’m more than satisfied Gase has come in and bulldozed his way to a scenario where he thinks he can be successful. The opposite has got the Jets the square root of ******* nowhere in the last few seasons.
Bring it on. Jet up.
